, feinstein's proposal and others. what david is pointing out, what you are seeing is similar to the anti-tobacco debate and apartheid debate where congress and washington were the lagging indicators of public opinion so you saw a lot of action happening in the states. colorado is not just the only place, a number of there states are thinking object taking action. it's a much, much better indicator of how quickly public opinion is shifting on something. i think you will see movement in the states and eventually you will see movement at the federal level as well. >> i hope that's the case. david, one-third of homes in colorado have a gun. including of course, the governor's. but the shootings in aurora profoundly effected him. especially after attending so many funerals. i have to ask you, is that what it takes to get changes to the legislation passed? i mean, should we send every member of the house of representatives to the next series of funerals when there's a mass shooting so that they can actually feel the profound impact of these weapons on the life of ordinary citizens of this coun

're in the situation room. u.s. senator dianne feinstein made news on tuesday when she promised to keep fighting for a ban on semiautomatic weapons like the one used to massacre these children and teachers in newtown, connecticut even though democratic leaders say they can't get enough votes to pass it. >> this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children, to protect schools, animald mal. it is aimed to dry up the supply of these over time. and it came out on a 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee. not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust as i would see it. >> front page of today's "new york daily news" calls it a shame. the assault weapons ban is effectively dead at least for now. cnn's mary snow is in newtown, connecticut right now. she is asking people there what they think about all of this. what do they think, mary? >> reporter: emotional reaction, wolf. there are people here who have taken on an active

against its own people let's listen to what dianne feinstein said yesterday to wolf blitzer. >> the white house has to make some decisions in this. i think the days are becoming more desperate. the regime is more desperate. we know where the chemical weapons are. it's not a secret that they're there. and i think the probabilities are very high that we're going into some very dark times and i think the white house needs to be prepared. >> and you were seeing there the house intelligence chair mike rogers also in that interview echoing those concerns about where we're headed and israeli newspapers this morning are citing security forces there saying that chemical weapons have been used. what can you tell us about this at this moment? >> well obviously we share the concerns of people in washington. and it's not only the syrian regime that has those chemical weapons but as syria fragments, as the conflict there continues and we see syria break up we are very concerned about the possibility that those sorts of very dangerous weapons, chemical weapons and others, will fall into the hands of ext

this in the past and what dianne feinstein should do is look at their own party and say are there enough democrats to vote for the broad reaching measures and the answer is, honestly, no, there is not. they should have spent more time working on maybe just background checks or mental health issues and looked at actually the prosecution of crimes of those that commit gun crimes. right now in this country, you get about 4.3 years, if you use a gun in a crime, including pulling the trigger and miss, that's where they could have made real headway, they didn't do it and it is because they wasted so much time on something they couldn't even get done with their own party. >> he said sweeping, many people don't see it as sweeping. >> well, you know what, this is a situation where we have 6-year-old children getting shot, why do people need these guns that you use on a battlefield to begin with? and i think that, you know, it is such a tough issue, responsibly, people who are into hobbies, that's one thing, but these power weapons and the fact you can slaughter so many people, we have to do something. we h

and donilon talks about it and senator feinstein talks about it. the china loves to sign treaties, but don't honor any of them. remember the ripping off of dvd's and china was selling them on the streets. they said we're going to clamp down on copy right. and the name hackers, it bothers me, i think of somebody trying to get a bank account or information like that or trying to drive up traffic on a website, but they're trying to get state secrets. that doesn't sound to me like hackers. >> not only are they spies, but they're saboteurs going after critical infrastructure. the great 2003 blackout in the northeast, probably caused by a chinese hacker causing a cascade and a loss of power. and americans died in that. this is a serious issue. it's not just spying or hacking. >> during the heatwave we had folks dieing, the elderly. they're going off certain agencies and we know that microsoft has been infiltrated, apple has been looked at and google has pulled out of china in part because of this. what are they going after? >> they're going after everything, not just the national security establ
